Homemade Almond Pecan Butter

Why make homemade nut butter when you can just buy it in the store? 
A – it’s sooo much yummier 
B – you know what you’re putting into it 
C – you can add whatever flavors you’d like. .
Don’t get me wrong, I buy nut butters in store frequently. But here’s a ridiculously easy recipe if you want to try!
1 cup almonds
1 cup pecans 
1 tbsp coconut (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp sea salt .
Preheat oven to 350°. Roast nuts on baking sheet for about 10 minutes – DO NOT LET THEM BURN (so watch carefully). They should be a deeper brown and be crackling a bit when you remove from the oven. 
Once cooled, blend in food processor. I used my regular kitchen aid- make sure to use a spatula to push down the crushed nuts on the sides. At this point add remaining ingredients. Process until nice and smooth. 
Enjoy! This was delicious topped with blueberries as pictured.
